Using Countersunk Bridge Screws with a Vintage Style Strat Tremolo

The Wudtone tremolo has recesses on the upper surface of the baseplate, so when you depress the tremolo arm and the bridge rises, the heads of the 6 bridge screws don't foul against the surface of the base plate. Apparently that enables their claimed 'Constant Pivot' mechanism - that keeps the guitar in tune.

I wonder though - will using countersunk screws with a Gotoh 510 tremolo achieve similar tuning stability?

    Yes.
